There is Training Corps... And there are situation when Instructors give unit "on site" training - we did see such situation in manga, when Nanoha trained 1039 Air Squadron. Also as she was asked about performance - I think it also qualifies as inspection, but that is just guess. So essentially like Enforcers Instructors are people who patch "thin" places, just in other way. Actually there was moment about "work for combat ace in time of peace" so it's essentially reserve position for what TSAB have of "proper" military personal and not police that they usually are. Also with description that included hardware testing, magic testing and tactics testing Instructors are more than just part of training corps and it's easy to see why like Enforcers they are called by position and not rank.

What are the official romanisations (not the dubnames, but the ones used in the Japanese supplementaries) for Arf, Amy and Zafira supposed to be? I'm looking at a copy of the Battle of Aces Official Guide, released (as you might expect) this year 2010, and it has them three rendered as Alph, Eimy (lolwut?) and Zafila.

And this is the reason why I don't use Thoma.

Oh thats just the language barrier...

Lets see if I can explain this.

Arf, Amy, and Zafira those were their official names even before the dub but because the letters in the Japanese alphabet is pronounced differently the letters used to pronounce these names will also be different.

For example "Zafira" The Japanese language has no "L" sound so they use "R" sounds to spell or pronounce a word with "L" in it. What makes this a problem is when someone is using the Japanese language to pronounce a word with an actual "R" in it you can't really tell if they are trying to use a "L" or "R"

The link below has more detail on the topic.

Want more?

Start here and click next to see them all.

Granted, they're VERY blurry, you can still see them.

Just use Sharpen until the letters aren't so fcukblurr'd. It's what I did for that particular card.

The only cards I don't have are Lutecia's, Regis and that assistant lady. Don't have Agito's normal card either.

All the info on the cards got translated into runes on the jp.NanohaWiki, which is still usable, it's just lol world names.

The one thing they're never consistent about is names. That being said.

And yet we have Zafira. On the PSP game website.

The letter "l" must be so fun. I enjoy listening to songs and suddenly....

Leady,Go to star heaven 恋だと地図が示すよ」
Yes, yes, even the lyrics say ready, but we aren't hearing it on the recording.

But hey, she says "ready" now. ^_^v

It's other way around - they couldn't make proper english name for them because of it. If you listen to first series sound stages than you will definitely know that there is no L in Arf name - because it's clear WHY Fate called her so, she "arfs" so much there...

Thanks. But I am confused now. Are the names in quotes following the "uninhabited world No. ..." the world names or the prison names? Because Tre and Quattro have the same world number but different names... Also, I cannot discern the world/facility name for Uno and Sette. O__o

Sharpen is a filter thing. Most image editing programs have them.

Y'know, it's kind of funny.



.... are the ones you get from the DVD sets, 2 per set. It's the Criminal Cards + the normal ones of Agito, Regis, that Auris or w/e lady that you had to mail-in to get.

And sneaking this from the manga thread~

Thats what I mean it's not the spelling but the pronunciation...

There's also the car motif on the names, there is a car named Opel Zafira but no Zafila AFIK.

I'm trying to confirm Vice and Ginga's military rank. Are they Master Sargent and Sargent respectively? Or did I get it one step off?

According to Nanohawiki, both of them are Sergeants during StS, but Vice was seen to have been promoted to Sergeant Major (same as Rein Zwei in StS) in the epilogue in StS' ep26.

You'd probably find none at all. As even in Japan, Nanoha is a niche show that airs on late nights to cater to dirty otaku and stuff, and it's only big within that scene.
